Social Justice Postcards

Each time you send one of these cards, you help advance the idea of equality and social justice. You won't find these in most book shops. In this era of instant 24/7 communication, sending a real post card with a beautiful graphic is not just making a statement, it's sending a mini-poster to someone. A much more thoughtful way to say "hi"or "thanks" than an email. Slow down and smell the soy ink.

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are people who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. That struggle might be a moral one; it might be a physical one; it might be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and never will. People might not get all that they work for in this world, but they must certainly work for all they get." – Frederick Douglass

pc-iwcs.gif Postcard: If we could shrink the world's population to 100 people
$0.50
PC-GV
TEXT of postcard: "If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following. There would be: Fifty-seven Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south, 8 Africans; 52 would be female, 48 would be male; 70 would be nonwhite, 30 would be white; 70 would be non-Christian, 30 would be Christian; 89 would be heterosexual, 11 would be homonsexual. Six people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth . . . and all 6 would be from the United States. Eighty would live in substandard housing; 70 would be unable to read; 50 would suffer from malnutrition. One would be near death; One would be near birth. One (yes, only one) would have a college education. One would own a computer (a year ago no one had a computer). How could the wealthy 6 live in peace with their neighbors? Surely, they would be driven to arm themselves against the other 94 . . . perhaps even to spend, as Americans do, about twice as much per person on military defense as the total income of two thirds of the villagers. When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent." by Philip M. Harter, MD, FACEOP, Stanford University School of Medicine.

$0.95
PC-NQ
"In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me." --Pastor Martin Niemoller

This quotation is widely used to voice the need for unity and supporting one another under authoritarian governments and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. Repression always begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates to encompass more and more targeted groups.

Text reads: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people won't feel insecure about you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we uncosciously give other people permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, presence automatically liberates others." – Marianne Williamson

PC-HN
1995 • Erika Weihls • Desighned for the 50th Commemnoration of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Japan
The crane birds depicted ibn the design are Japanese symbols of oeace. Legend in Japan is that anyone who folds one thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish. Sadako Sasaki was 2 years old when she survived the atomic destruction of Hiroshima on August 6th 1945. A ddcade later she developed leukemia. While hospitalized, she began to fold origami paper cranes. She folded over one thousand of the cranes. She died October 25, 1955. Her wish was for world peace. The 1977 children's book, "Sadako & The Thiousand Paper Cranes" tells her story. The story told in the book was that she only made 644 before she died, and that her friends folded the remaining ones to reach one thousand. In 1958 a statue of Sadako Sasaki was erected in Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park. Each year on the anniversary of the atomic bombing, August 6th, children from all over Japan bring thousands of folded paper cranes to lay at the base of the statue. The origami crane has become an enduring symbol of the worldwide movement against nuclear weapons.
The United States is still the only country on earth to ever detonate atomic bombs on human beings (August 6th on Hiroshima and August 9th 1945 on Nagasaki, Japan). The U.S. has an arsenal of thousands of nuclear weapons of far greater desrtructive power than the original bombs used in 1945. The U.S. nuclear arsenal is far greater than any other of the seven nations that have nuclear weapons.
